Princetonian on The Amazing Race Gets a Private Commencement

These days when a Princetonian skips graduating with
his class in favor of  starting his reality television journey on The Amazing Race Princeton rolls out the red carpet.  Sending him out into the world to join the community of reality TV spin-offs and stardom without a final good-bye attended by CD-Y’s gal pal University President Shirley Tilghman and celebrity professor Cornel West is just not in the University’s nature.  CD-Y was not able to attend the official graduation from the college he loves so dearly on June 1st so according to this mega-fan he got to graduate in private at his own so-called “Mini-Commencement” on the 20th of May.  Amazing Race teammate and fellow celeb Jonathan Schwartz, (who starred as “Matt” in the Broadway show The Fantasticks) was not given similar Golden Child treatment.  I guess you have to win a Pyne Prize, pose with General Petraeus, star on Korean Television, and run USG to get a private graduation at Princeton.

According to Amazing Race freaks over at Reality Fan Forum Schwartz and CD-Y are members of Team Nassoon, named for the a cappella group the pair were members of in their days at Princeton.  They made it through the first leg of the journey which took place in Gloucester, MA and the pair then travelled to London (with a stop at Stonehenge) and then to Accra, Ghana.  Reality TV freaks at Reality Fan Forum and  Survivor Sucks are abuzz with news, rumors, speculations about TAR17.  We’ve found out that the team is doing well so far and that an interesting connection has been made between Jonathan and Amazing Race 13 winner Nick Spangler: both played the same part in The Fantasticks.

If the pair don’t get into a fight about which one is more beloved by the University (duh it’s CD-Y) they may stand a good chance of winning.

Princetonians/ Nassoons/ TAR fans with news about the duo drop us a line!  More news coming soon.

    That's weird. The Ink broke this story more than 24 hours ago and there's nary a link to them in this post. Cite your sources, IvyGate.

    This is a good article about a school other than Yale. Deal with it.

    @Yale13
    Your argument makes no sense. Here's why: Normally I write really poorly but one day I copy a really good writer's work and present it as my own. Even though a lot of people think that I am now a much better writer, that is not true, I would still remain a shit writer.
    The same is the case with Ivygate right now.

    The Fantasticks is not, and has never been a Broadway show.

    For the record – Princeton didn't just decide to give Connor his own special ceremony. Connor invited some family and friends for a mini-graduation as a fun way to say goodbye to the school, and he asked President Tilghman and Cornel West to speak at it if they could (which they did). And Roomthreeseventeen is right…The Fantasticks is and always has been off-Broadway (although the theater's located right in Times Square with the rest of them).
